Contract: N68335-14-C-0104
Award Amount: $79,929.00
 

Abstract:

An integrated oil quality and debris monitoring system is proposed to provide automated oil analysis capability directly on-platform. The overall program objective is to develop a packaging with form factor and interconnections that permit direct substitution of existing debris monitoring systems on applicable end-items. A multi-modal sensor approach is proposed using proven technologies that can readily be incorporated into a sensor package with minimal development effort to enable rapid development and deployment to air platforms such as the Joint Strike Fighter. During Phase I, the feasibility of the integrated sensor concept will be demonstrated in the lab based on anticipated failure modes. A sensor design concept will be developed including all necessary sensor suite instrumentation, embedded electronics and processing for operating as an automated system. Phase II will develop a to-scale prototype system for testing by the Navy. This system is expected to provide real-time diagnostic information and characterization of the lubricant condition. An in-line sensor would provide rapid on-site assessment in order to avoid significant delays in servicing the aircraft. The sensor system is expected to find widespread application for both military and commercial lubrications systems.
